Two wildly inappropriate friends run amok through the Danish countryside plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries. Hopelessly wrongheaded Frank "kidnaps" the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential to join sex-crazed Casper on his secret adulterous weekend canoe trip. From exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to

KLOWN is a one of the most comically aggressive films you will ever see.
Its deliberate aversion to good taste is the biggest gag of all, and the source of its claim to infamy; yet running beneath the grossness, and the calamitous bonhomie, is a quiet streak of despair.
It can seem sometimes that Hollywood has a monopoly on stupid, obnoxious comedy. Anyone who sees "Klown" will learn otherwise.
Think of all the gags you think might go too far, and then watch as Nørgaard takes them even further.
Situational comedies need some believability to be effective, and too many gags in Klown feel like punchlines whose set-ups were engineered in reverse...
Aside from its standout scenes Klown is underpowered, content to coast on the easy chemistry between its leads.
Ultimately, Klown is just a comedy, and an excruciatingly funny one at that, even if at times it does veer into somewhat uncomfortable territory.
Denmark's charmless answer to The Hangover crosses the line between gross-out and just plain gross.
Each and every situation here is designed to make viewers squirm -- and, as a side effect, laugh out of shock and discomfort.
A raunchy shock comedy through and through, one in which nearly every major laugh involves, in one way or another, male genitalia. Or, in one case, an index finger.
There are certainly laughs to be had here, but maybe Klown was more effective (and funnier) in thirty-minute doses on TV than dragged out to feature length.
Klown is another comedy that wrings most of its laughs from the premise that in the absence of a civilizing female presence males are apt to revert to despicable and idiotic behavior.
The degree of difficulty is very high with this uncomfortable comedy. I cringed with laughter throughout.
- Casper: She made pancakes!
- Casper: I need women! It's my drug!
- Frank: I have loads of father potential!
